~~OVIE's Build Thread!~~ {Awesome Thread of Winsauce}

Is there any major problems with doing this on a stock 105k motor. I see most of the people boosting are around the 50k range. If I do decide to boost would I be looking at a mandatory engine build or can I get away for at least a few months on stock internals? Any input will be appreciated.

So is it more maintenance than the normal turbo car maintenance? or at higher intervals? Im not going to be boosting at a high psi, until I can get to building the engine, no holy block club for me. What maintenance are you talking about? What did you do for the higher mileage car, psi and maintenance wise?

Re: Boosting a high mileage 3

Yes, and yes.

More maintence, makes sure all maintence is done, leaking valve cover/ oil pan, torn engine mounts, ticking vcts flaps inside intake, original plugs in a motor over 100k miles......

Do all maintence, and have oil changed at 3k for the life of the engine. If you waited till 5-7k miles every time, your lucky to have an engine past 100k anyways.

Once boosted, change plugs to whatever kit calls for, change oil sooner, I tell people every 2k, oil is cheaper than a tank of fuel.
Make sure you dont have any other issues with the car before boosting.

Re: Boosting a high mileage 3

Yea oil changes and other maintenance had been done on a regular basis (synthetic every time). Rear motor mount currenty needs to be changed along with some other simpler things. What psi would be safe to boost at? Like I said this is all until I start to build my engine. Plus it will be cool to have one of the highest mileage 3 boosted.

Re: Boosting a high mileage 3

Full compression and leak down test is the very first thing you should do, that will give you a good idea of the engine's health to start off with....if your compression is not consistant across all 4 cylinders or border line in spec, or your valve train give questionable ressult during the leak down I would not even bother trying to boost it, there are other considerations such as the age of the fuel pump, condition of the various sensors....btw you have no idea what you are getting yourself into lol.

We choose to build a n/a-f/i Mazda3.....

Not because it is Easy....but because it is hard

Because that challenge is one we are willing to accept

One we are unwilling to postpone
....and one we inttend to win

No reason not to ask :P. So is this just a lost cause?
I don't mind reading up more about this. I love harboring information about this regardless of if I do continue with this or not. Information is always something nice to have.
